A few weeks ago, I mentioned the upcoming trade deadline as one of the reasons the Yankees will win the AL East this year. This past offseason was another all-or-nothing one, as it usually seems to be for the [...]
The Yankees took care of business Sunday afternoon, topping the Orioles 4-2 to win this weekend’s four-game set, and also go a season-high 22 games over .500. Freddy Garcia turned in yet another strong performance, throwing 6 innings of six-strikeout, two-run ball.
O’s starter Jake Arrieta managed to wiggle out [...]
This mailbag question comes courtesy of longtime reader Frank:
This morning I read that Epstein has made it known that the Sox will be “active” at the deadline. I think the Yanks will block any trade that involves a pitcher, especially a reliever, and I don’t see Epstein getting anything more than a 4 or [...]
Sometime this afternoon the Yankees will officially announce that they have acquired Lance Berkman from the Astros for Mark Melancon and Jimmy Paredes. In a separate deal, the Yankees traded for the Indians’ Austin Kearns for a player to be named later, who will [...]
We’ve heard in recent weeks that the Yanks plan on targeting two types of players this year at the mid-season trade deadline. A relief pitcher and an athletic Outfielder who can come off the bench. But thus far, getting anyone to put a name to such targets have been few and far between. Only

Joel Sherman compiled his list of top 10 players to watch in the 2010 season, and Brandon Webb was mentioned:
BRANDON WEBB, DIAMONDBACKS
The pitching version of Reyes: a 2005-08 iron man who led the majors in innings and wins before breaking down last year. [...]
Since July’s trade deadline, Roy Halladay has put together a truly forgettable campaign. In 6 starts in August, Halladay had a 2-4 record, a 4.71 ERA, a 1.40 WHIP and a .316 BAA. Sergio Mitre actually had the same amount of wins in August while having started fewer games. One wonders how Halladay would have [...]
From George King (NY Post):
At Friday’s trade deadline, the Yankees added utilityman Jerry Hairston Jr. and nothing else. Not wanting to add payroll, the Yanks weren’t serious players for lefty Jarrod Washburn, who went from Seattle to Detroit.
So, what are the chances of making a deal now that a player has to [...]
